Dr. Margaret I Thirston has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

phoney baloney

my doctor referred me to Dr. Thirston. Alarms went off when I was early for a scheduled appointment and arrived into a plush opulent office devoid of patients. Although having an appointment I still had to wait for no apparent reason.. After a very basic cursory examination she wanted to set up a series of appointments to begin my therapy. She did nothing

She scared me with her abrasive demeanor. She gets mad and is almost 'abusive' in her treatment

This doctor is verbally abusive and yells when she is frustrated and can't figure out treatment for patients. I have seen her for quite sometime now and other people have witnessed her verbal abuse. I am changing doctors asap because I do not need to be yelled at because she can't figure out what she's doing. She also NEVER reads the chart and she forgets everything.... I can't tell you how many times I've had to repeat something to her. It's very maddening especially when a doctor is supposed to help you.

She is a wonderful and caring doctor that looks out for the well being of her patients. I feel like I'm in good hands and she shows a passion to help me get better. I would recommend her to anyone.
